Dishonest Ad: “Steve Daines will protect Montanans with pre-existing conditions and fight to lower prescription drug prices.”
FACT CHECK: Daines has voted repeatedly to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and to expand “junk” insurance plans which are not required to cover pre-existing conditions. Daines has voted against measures to lower Rx drug prices, and has opposed giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug prices.
Dishonest Ad: “Bullock will help Biden and Pelosi pass government-controlled health care.”
FACT CHECK: Governor Bullock opposes Medicare for All because it would eliminate private insurance and raise taxes. Instead, he supports a public option which experts argue is the best way to improve health care affordability and continue private insurance.
Dishonest Ad: “Their liberal plan would force rural hospitals to close.”
FACT CHECK: Under Governor Bullock’s leadership, he worked to bring Democrats and Republicans together to expand Medicaid, which has served as a lifeline to rural hospitals. Daines has repeatedly voted to gut Medicaid expansion and supports the lawsuit that seeks to dismantle the health care law , which could decimate Medicaid expansion, if Republicans are successful.
